    well Win...usually in the OR you get weekends and holidays off unless you are on call that weekend. some places pay more for OR nurses, especially if you have a speciality like Open Hearts. I like the OR. you lose floor nursing skills. but you gain other skills.

    we have many openings in the OR at childrens, we just opened a new heart center, and many OR nurses went there. I don't mind loosing the floor experience, but does it get boring just standing for hours at a time?

    I work in a community non-profit blood center. I am the Donor Services Director. My staff work the blood drives and the donor rooms. I have been in this field for 15 years and I truly enjoy it. Unfortunately, you never see or hear anyone else discussing this field. In fact, when I am asked my speciality, I don't know how to reply. Anybody out there do the same thing I do? Would love to hear from you!

    I am really lucky. I work Monday thru Friday at a Psychiatric Outpatient Treatment Facility. There are 5 RN's and each of us are assigned to a different doctor. It is really cool and I love psych nursing. Besides, how often can nurses find a Mon-Fri 8am-5pm job!!
